What’s your why?
My goal in life is simple. I want to leave this world in better shape than it was when I arrived. To me this means protecting the environment and empowering people so they can live fulfilling lives. I’m motivated to provide clean water to children in need so they have an opportunity to live a healthy life and pursue their dreams. This is what gets me out of bed in the morning and keeps fire in my eyes.
What’s one thing everyone should know?
You provide value no matter who you are. There is no one else on this planet like you and you have the power to make a great impact. Never give up on your dreams and always be chasing your next goal.
Who inspires you?
My fiancé, Emily, inspires me everyday to be a better man, to have patience, and to never give up on my dreams.
Last meal on Earth?
